I just bought this 2005 escape which is nice i love it . but i notice when i stop driving its smoking under the hood . Not a lot of smoke and it also smells bad . all fluids are ok and nothing seems to be leaking. I did notice that the dealership had it detailed and it looks like they used tire wet on the engine to make everything look shiny could that be the smoke prob and smell anybody have any ideas thanks

yeah if the oil was recently changed, it might just be on the exhaust header and it's burning off. I've had this happen in the past, it literally smokes from under the hood. Does it smell like burning oil? If you have the vent on do you smell it in the car when stopped at a light?
